COLUMBIA — The Loaves and Fishes received an upgrade when it moved to its new location at Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church, which has a larger kitchen and dining room than the soup kitchen's previous location. Various organizations and church groups volunteer at the soup kitchen every night of the week.
